Counting Down and Two Awards

I can’t believe it’s two days away.

I’ve tried to figure out specifically what I’m so excited about. Much as I’d like to return home with a signed contract in hand, I’m realistic enough to realize that’s not going to happen. So what do I expect to happen?

I expect to meet a lot of writers I’ve only known through the blogosphere.
I expect to get some books signed (hopefully, without being too much of a fan girl!)
I expect to be overwhelmed with information.
I expect to be inspired.

I’m really looking forward to these four days. I’ll try to post while I’m there, but I’m making no guarantees. And of course, if I do end up with a contract (ha!) you’ll be the first to know =)


On a completely different note, I was touched and amazed to receive two blogging awards in the last week. Thanks, guys! And since I’m supposed to pass them on, here goes!

The first is the “Humane Award” for blogs that love writers and laughter in equal measures. Thanks, Glam! I’m awarding this to:

Carrie Harris (snarfalicious!)
Lisa and Laura (D-Bag-o-Meter. Nuff said.)
Tess Hilmo (She always makes me smile)
Corey Schwartz (To read her is to love her)
T. Anne (this post had me rolling!)

Pass it on to five more, ladies. Here are the rules (scroll to August 2009.)

The second award is for the “Superior Scribbler.” Thanks, Kelly H-Y! I am awarding this one on to:

Elana J (Brilliant writer!)
Casey McCormick (Love those Agent Spotlights!)
Yat-Yee Chong (Always thoughtful and insightful)
Myra McEntire (Funny and honest)
Jolie Stekly (Cuppa Jolie, anyone?)

And here are the rules for this award. Pass it on!
